It may have been a little while since we last saw them, but B*Witched are back and ready to delight UK audiences with their new EP. You may remember B*Witched from the late 90’s and early 00’s when they had some enormous hits with songs like ‘C’est La Vie’, ‘Rollercoaster’ and of course ‘Blame It On The Weatherman’.
We managed to get a little time with the lovely Lindsay Armaou, one quarter of the band, to find out more about what they have been up to and what the future holds for B*Witched.
What have you been up to since we last saw B*witched?
We have been very busy in the studio writing and recording our new EP ‘Champagne or Guinness’! We’ve also been doing lots of shows around the country, and we all have individual projects and busy lives so we’re busy bees!
What was it like being back in the recording studio?
I’ve loved it. I really enjoy that part of our job, the creative side. Getting in the studio with an idea for a song and watching it grow is very exciting and fulfilling. I’m really proud of the songs we’ve written for this EP and each one has it’s own story and inspiration. Our single ‘The Stars Are Ours’ is about growing in confidence and as a person and embracing life, which is quite inspirational I hope.
What plans have you got for the next year where B*witched are concerned?
Our EP is released on the 28th Sept and our single ‘The Stars Are Ours’ a week before that so lots to look forward to.We have lots more gigs coming up and we are hoping to tour next year which would be awesome.
Back in the late 90’s & early 00’s your style was very denim based, will things be different this time around?
Yes. I love the fact that we are remembered for our denim look back then and it definitely worked for us then, but we are 12 years older now so we’re ready to be more feminine haha! We had a real tomboy image back then which went well with our vigorous dance routines. There’s no way we could have done those routines in anything but trainers. Nowadays we wear heels on stage so the routines are much tamer.
What’s in your handbag (we ask everyone this and would love a sneaky picture if possible).
Lots of ‘stuff’. The normal things like purse, phone, keys, oyster card, but then you’ll find receipts, a stray chewing gum, an eyeliner, earphones, pen, more receipts. Honestly, the bigger the bag the more you ‘need’, so I say just have a small bag and travel light!
Thank you to Lindsay for taking the time to chat with us and get a sneak peek at her handbag!
